Audio-Enhanced Technology Strengthens Community Building in the Online Classroom
Weber, Michele C.; Dereshiwsky, Mary
eJEP: eJournal of Education Policy, Spr 2013
The purpose of this phenomenological study was to explore the lived experiences of students in an audio-enhanced online classroom. Online students who had participated in such a classroom experience were interviewed. The interviews were analyzed to explain the students' experiences with the technology online and show how each student perceived the audio within the online classroom. One of the emergent themes was that the use of audio-enhancements in the online environment helps to build community and as a result promotes transformational learning.
